Both the cricketers were suspended and sent back home mid-way from the tour of Australia and it seemed uncertain when they would be back to do the job they specialize in.

"The decision has been taken with the concurrence of the Learned Amicus Curiae, Mr. P.S. Narasimha".

It was decided that CoA would wait for the Ombudsman, a position that was previously filled on the Supreme Court of India's recommendation, to conduct a disciplinary enquiry and propose sanction should he/she deem necessary.

The teaser starts with Salman Khan's monologue, as he introduces his character and reveals why his name is Bharat in the film. The teaser also shares a glimpse of Katrina Kaif who can be seen standing besides Salman in front of the Wagah border.


The division within the two-member CoA - chairman Vinod Rai and former India women's captain Diana Edulji - had dragged the matter to Supreme Court. For the last three days, he has apparently been training at a private ground in Baroda and when the decision to lift the suspension was announced, Pandya was actually at the ground in Baroda.

On Thursday the BCCI said: "The [board] committee of administrators is of the view that the interim suspension orders. should be presently lifted with immediate effect". For the record, the adjudication on the matter had to be done by an Ombudsman, the appointment of whom became a matter of sub-judice. "As per constitution of the BCCI, an ombudsman can be appointed at the Annual General Meeting (AGM)".

"I did not wish this issue to turn into an administrative mess. If Ben Stokes could continue playing while the court case was on, why can't that be applicable for Pandya and Rahul", Khanna told PTI. It was particularly unfortunate for Pandya who was out from cricket for some months owing to injury and had just started to make a comeback in the run-up to the World Cup in May-July. Indian team's skipper Virat Kohli stated that the Indian team doesn't align with the "inappropriate" views of the batsmen.

"People said you could have edited it, I didn't realise it".

The pair's suspension was imposed after their appearance on popular celebrity talk show Koffee with Karan, which is hosted by Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar. I didn't think they'd get in trouble.

Johar admitted that he had many sleepless nights when the duo was slapped with a ban and he had even texted them saying he was sorry for having invited them on to the show.
